seems to me this scarlet/touch of gray sort of bogs down. always found the transition a little awkward and somewhat anti-climatic. loved that rick griffin art for this tour! best thing about the fall of 85 was that the kc royals took the series! actually, i thought columbia sc a few nights later was super weird and richmond 11/1 superb in spots. this fox board seems to have some gens on it maybe? no matter---atlanta was always a kick and they treated us pretty good over in little 5 points, didn't they?
This is a wonderful show, in fact the Scarlet => Touch is one of my all-time favourite Dead-moments. Worth having, certainly among the highlights of 1985.

No place like the Fox!
This was only my second Dead show, and it still ranks as one of my favorites. The band was really on (they really loved Atlanta), and there is no place like the Fox Theatre to see any band, much less the Dead. As the second set began people had broken open glow-sticks and sprayed the crowd with neon green dots. The transition in Scarlet>Touch is increadible. At the change from "I will survive" to "We will survive" a banner as high and wide as the stage featuring the Twenty Years So Far minuteman unfurled behind the band. It still gives me goosebumps when I hear the crowd go wild on the tape. I highly recommend this show.
